    1984 Michael Jordan Original Photograph from First NBA Game. Chicago was a virtual wasteland for basketball talent until Michael Jordan showed up. Sparse crowds and lackluster play were the norm for those who witnessed the team's games. Jordan arrived and things changed in a hurry. While Jordan was photographed at all stages of his career, this is the first 8x10" image we have seen from his debut game. The rookie notched 16 points, grabbed six rebounds and dished out seven assists in a 109-93 win over Washington.

    Heritage Auctions realized $33,600 for a ticket stub from MJ's opening act in August of 2018. We expect a spirited bidding battle for this original photograph which captures Jordan throwing a pass according to the caption. The reverse has a caption affixed, all important "Fri Oct 27 '84" date stamp and larger caption with "Bierman" noted as the photographer.
